Hecorbm$ Secretary's 2\eport 



Mr. Ckairmmi and Members of the Society: 

In the absence of the usual "President's Address," your 
secretary has been requested to present to this meeting s^me 
data and statistics respecting the Society. These will show 
you that the work of the Society has proceeded along the 
usual course. It is apparent, however, that there has been a 
lessening of activities in a number of lines. A smaller num- 
ber of new members than usual has been added during the 
year, the total of gifts is slightly smaller than the average for 
some years past and the number of readers less. These 
changes are doubtless due, in part at least, to the momentous 
events which are now absorbing the attention of the entire 
world. 

MEETINGS. 

The usual monthly meetings have been held from October 
to May, at which papers or addresses of interest have been 
presented by members of the Society or others. The average 
attendance at these meetings has been about thirty-five; the 
smallest number present, on a stormy evening, being twenty, 
and the largest above fifty-five. Friends of the Society as well 
as members have been present at each of these meetings to 
listen to the papers, they probably constituting nearly one-half 
of the whole number present. This meeting, the annual, 
makes nine general meetings held during the year. The 
Standing Committee, which acts in an executive capacity for 
the whole Society, has held five meetings, at all but one of 
which business of importance has been considered and acted 
upon . 

The following papers have been read at the regular meetings 
of the year: 

In October, by Mr. John M. Holcombe, on " Colleges and 
Universities of Colonial Times," stating that the founding of 
each was inspired by religious purposes, and that ten now in 
existence were founded previous to the Revolution. 



20 

In November, by Mr. Herbert H. White, on "The Begin- 
ning of the American Union," explaining the work of the 
committees of correspondence, of safety, of inspection and of 
the pay table. 

In December, by Franklin B. Dexter, Eitt. D., on "The 
Removal of Yale College from Saybrook to New Haven in 
1 717," showing the views of the different trustees upon the 
subject of removal and the various influences which bore upon 
the question. 

In January, by Ernest Bradford Ellsworth, Esq., on 
"Godfrey Malbone," sketching the life of this quaint resi- 
dent of eastern Connecticut, with his tory beliefs and his strong 
stand 'for the Episcopal Church. 

In February, an address on "Social Life in New England 
from 1790 to 1S20," was given by Rev. George L. Clark, in 
which the life and activities of the people were touched on 
from many angles. 

In March, by your secretary on "The Upper House of the 
Connecticut General Assembly previous to the Constitution," 
dwelling upon the mode of election of its members and their 
long continuance in office. 

In April, a paper prepared by Mr. James R. Graham was 
read by Arthur E. Shipman, Esq., on "The John Brown 
Raid," Mr. Graham detailing the history of this event partly 
from his personal recollection of it. 

In May, by Miss Alice M. Gay, on " Hartford in the Time 
of Queen Anne," a gathering of scattered incidents and events 
which together formed an enlightening picture of that period. 

OBITUARY. 

Death has removed thirteen members from our rolls during 
the year: 

Our revered and honored president, Doctor Samuel Hart, 
the third in seniority among our members, having been 
admitted in 1-875, died February 25, 191 7. 

At our meeting on March 6 the presiding officer, Vice-Presi- 
dent Frank F. Starr, read the following minute: 

It is with sorrow that I have to announce that since the last meeting 
our honored President, Rev. Samuel Hart, I). I)., LL. D., D. C. L., 
entered into rest on Sunday morning about 12:30, February 25. 



He was elected to membership July 6, 1S75, and took an active part 
in the work of the Society. 

At the annual meeting of May, 1876, the next following his admis- 
sion, he was placed on the Library Committee, and with the exception 
of the year from May, 1890, to May, 1S91, served on that committee 
until May, 1S99, part of the time acting as Chairman. 

In May, 1S90, he was elected Corresponding Secretary and continued 
in that office until May, 1894, when he was promoted to the Vice- 
Presidency. 

This he held until December, 1900, when he was elected President to 
fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Dr. Charles J. Hoadly, and 
by continuous re-elections held the office up the time of his death. 

He was a man of many talents and held numerous positions in Church 
and State. Beloved by all, the numerous delegates from various 
organizations, including four from this Society, with about one hundred 
of the clergy from this state and elsewhere and many others, formed 
an assemblage of several hundred at the funeral in the Church of the 
Holy Trinity, Middletown, on Wednesday, the 28th, and was a fine 
tribute to his memory. 

At the next succeeding meeting, April 3, a committee of the 
Society, which had been appointed for the. purpose, reported 
the following, which was adopted and was directed to be 
entered upon the records of the Society: 

MEMORIAL MINUTE TO PRESIDENT SAMUEL HART, D. D., D.C.L., EL. D. 

The members of the Connecticut Historical Society, moved by a deep 
sense of the Society's indebtedness to Dr. Samuel Hart, desire to express 
for ourselves and record for our successors, our appreciation of his 
services during a period of more than forty years. 

He was elected a member in 1875, and associated with a coterie of 
scholars who soon approved his worth by choosing him chairman of the 
Library Committee. On that committee he labored with efficiency for 
fourteen years. He was then elected Corresponding Secretary, for 
which office his literary gifts and extensive acquaintance were an ample 
endowment. In 1894 he was elected a Vice-President, and six years 
later, in response to a unanimous desire, he assumed the office of 
President. 

We recognize the value of Dr. Hart's labors in extending the member- 
ship of this Society and in furthering its financial support. His interest 
was unfailing, though often claimed by other causes. Wisdom, fidelity 
and courtesy were the characteristics of his administration. As the 
representative of this Society he graced many memorial occasions. He 
was frequently called upon to render public service in addresses, for 
which he was qualified by his thorough knowledge of Connecticut 
history. 

In learning, he was accomplished in many fields. As a patient and 
accurate student, he attained a high ideal as a scholar, and unselfishly 
devoted all he acquired to noble ends. With the members of this 



Society, Dr. Hart has left an abiding remembrance of his personality — 
erect in bearing, modest in demeanor, cordial in greetings, the dignified 
composure of his face, radiant with the goodness of his character, 
dominating his presence. We would make record of our sympathy for 
those who were associated with him in the spheres of education, charity, 
citizenship and the church, in which he rendered distinguished and 
affectionate service,, and unite with them in expressions of sorrow at 
the passing from us of such a noble and useful life.

in historicaf subjects, admitted in 1893, died April 10, 19 17. 

Mary Clark, admitted 1S93. well known for her benevo-

Mrs. Ella Coe Birdsey Curtis of Windsor, wife of 
Grosvenor W. Curtis, for many years a frequent visitor at the 
library, admitted in 1894, died December 2, 191 6. 

Walter Bliss, admitted in 1895, a well known publisher 
and a connoisseur of line books and literary manuscripts, died 
March 16, 1917. 

Cleveland Abbe, A. M., LL. D., B. S., of Washington, 

D. C, elected a corresponding member in 1896, a man of 
scientific attainments and widely known for his work as a 
meteorologist in the United States Weather Bureau, died 
October. 28, 191 6. He was joint author of the Abbe Gene- 
alogy, published since his death, on which he had worked for 
more than half a century. 

membership. 

Our total membership has decreased by eleven during the 
year. In addition to the twelve active members, one of whom 
was a member for life, and one corresponding member whose 
deaths have already been noted, two active members have 
resigned and the names of five have been dropped from our 
rolls. Eight active members have been admitted to the 
Society. One ex-officio member has been retired by age limit 
from the Supreme Court bench, and his place has been taken 
by the advancement of one of the Superior Court judges; 
while two newly appointed Superior Court judges have taken 
their seats. Our active membership is now 330, of whom 33 
are members for life. We have also 19 ex-officio members. 
one of whom is also an active member, one honorary and 
seven corresponding; making a total membership of 356. The 
slight falling oil in the number of our members during the last 
few years is to be deplored, and seems to me a matter for con- 
sideration. Is it not possible that the appointment of a special 
committee or committees to solicit new members would be 
advantageous. 

FINAIsXIAL. 

Because of the substantial increase in our invested funds 
during the last two years, it has not been found necessary to 
appeal to our members for contributions to prevent an annual 



14 



deficit. Let both our members and friends remember, how- 
ever, that the Society could use to good advantage a much 
larger income than is returned by its present invested funds, 
and that a much larger income would correspondingly increase 
its sphere of activity and usefulness. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, 

Recording Secretary.

iibrarian's Keport. 



Mr. Chairman a?id Members of the Society: 

Your librarian in presenting this report ventures to call 
attention to the fact that it is the twenty-fifth consecutive 
annual report that he has had the honor of laying before the 
members of the Society. This, with a single exception, is a 
longer period than any other official of the Society has ever 
continued in its service. The changes that have taken place 
in the Society during these years and the three preceding 
years, since my admission to membership in July, 1S89, have 
been many and varied. The active membership, a little less 
to-day than it was about five years ago, has increased in the 
last twenty-eight years from 115 to 330. During that period 
we have lost by death 232 active members. Six honorary, 15 
corresponding and several who were members by reason of 
their official positions have also deceased. Only twenty-one 
of our present active members, two corresponding and one 
ex-officio, were members previous to my admission, and one 
active and one corresponding member were admitted on the 
same da)- as myself. In the twenty-five years of my librarian- 
ship above 35,000 books and pamphlets have been added to the 
library, the number being about equally divided between the 
two classes. In addition to these there are above 2,000 
miscellaneous items, the great majority of them printed matter. 
Only a very small percentage of the additions are duplicates. 
All of these additions have been made with the expenditure of 
only $S, 150.94 for purchases; the greater part of our additions 
coming by gift and by exchange with other societies. We 
have also added during the same period about 16,500 pieces to 
our valuable collection of historical manuscripts, probably 
making their total number to-day in excess of 50,000 items. 
It should be remembered that a manuscript may niea-n a single 



16 

sheet of paper or a volume of several hundred pages. Our 
family genealogies have increased in number in the last twenty- 
four years from about 365 to about 1,950; our local histories 
have trebled or perhaps quadrupled, and notable additions 
have been made to several other departments of the library. 

Among the gifts received are at least one book and one 
manuscript each having a value to-day of more than one 
thousand dollars; while each of four series of manuscripts 
probably has as great a value. 

During my librarianship the Society has published thirteen 
volumes of Collections, two volumes of Cincinnati Records and 
Papers, one volume of vital records, twenty-four annual 
reports, three special pamphlets and several leaflets. Together 
these contain a total of over 8,000 pages, equaling an average 
publication of 320 pages — a respectable sized volume — each 
year. 

The total number of our readers during the last twenty-two 
years has been 78,822, a yearly average of more than 3.575. 

Our publications during the past year are of unusual interest 
and importance. The earliest was the usual " annual report " 
of May, 19 1 6, consisting of 51 pages. This included, in addi- 
tion to the usual yearly data relating to the Society, a list of 
the 200 family genealogies added to the library in the last five 
years, since the publication of the separately issued pamphlet 
list of genealogies in 191 1. A few copies of this additional 
list were separately published and paged to supplement the 
list of 191 1. 

Two volumes of Special Publications, one folio and the other 
quarto in size, were issued in March. The publication of 
these handsome volumes was made possible through the 
interest and generosity of the Honorable Morgan G. Bulkeley, 
a life member of our society for more than a score of years. 
The quarto volume contains the " Records of the Connecticut 
State Society of the Cincinnati," from its formation in 17S3 to 
its formal dissolution in 1S04, comprising, in addition to the 
preliminary printed pages, 223 pages of records. The folio 
volume contains the " Papers" of the same society, including 
the original "institution," lists and autographs of the mem- 
bers, minutes of meetings of the General Society, correspondence 
addressed to the State Society, including two letters bearing 



General Washington's autograph, reports of officers and com- 
mittees and abstracts of the treasurer's reports; the whole 
forming a volume of 181 pages besides the introductory pages. 
All of the pages of "Records" and "Papers" are published 
in full sized facsimile reproduction of the original documents 
by photo- gelatine process; every letter of the writing as well 
as every stain or imperfection in the paper showing as dis- 
tinctly as in the original manuscript. 

The records and all of the documents, with a single excep- 
tion, that are reproduced in these volumes have been in the 
custody of this society for seventy-five years. The Connecti • 
cut State Society of the Cincinnati having been revived. 
Senator Bulkeley, wdio is an active member of the revived 
society, was desirous that the records and papers of the origi- 
nal society should be published; and it was at his suggestion 
that the facsimile form of publication was adopted. It seems 
proper to state that the reproductions were made and printed 
by the Wyanoak Publishing Company of New York City, 
and that the volumes were bound by the Case, Lockwood and 
Brainard Company of Hartford. 

In March also the sixteenth volume of our series of 
" Collections," which had been in the hands of. the printers 
and binders for more than a year, was published. This 
volume, an octavo of almost 600 pages, contains "Corre- 
spondence and Documents during Roger Wolcott's Governor- 
ship of the Colony of Connecticut, 1 750-1 754, with some of 
earlier date." This volume continues the series of correspond- 
ence and documents of the governors of the colony, which has 
now been published by the Society for the period of thirty 
years from 1724 to 1754, and for the official careers of 
Governors Joseph Talcott, Jonathan Law and Roger Woleott. 
The appendix to the present volume contains some official 
pnpers of Governor Law, now owned by a descendant in 
Philadelphia. The importance and value of these volumes of 
correspondence and documents is widely recognized, and your 
librarian, speaking also as one of the publication committee, 
would recommend a continuance of our publications along 
these lines, either by the issue of the papers of some later 
governor or of some person who had a noteworthy public 
career — possibly Hon. William Samuel Johnson. 



Contrary to our usual custom, the Society has during the 
year loaned two of its oil paintings to the Brooklyn Museum 
of Fine Arts, to be placed for a short time in its loan exhibi- 
tion of the work of early American artists. The pictures 
loaned were portraits of Judge Stephen Mix Mitchell of 
Wethersfield and of his wife, Hannah (Grant) Mitchell. They 
were painted by Samuel Finley Breese Morse about 1825-1827, 
and were presented to the Society by their daughter, Harriet 
Mitchell, who died in 187S. 

The Massachusetts Historical Society has presented us with 
a beautifully made series of photostat reproductions of the 
Boston News Letter, nearly complete for the years 17 19, 1720, 
1721, 1722. This supplements our volume of original issues of 
the same paper, which begins in December, 17.1.5, and extends 
to the beginning of 17 19. Some numbers missing in this 
series have also been supplied in photostat facsimile by the 
Massachusetts Historical Society. This volume, which was 
presented to this Society more than sixty years ago by Dorson 
E. Sykes of Norwich, was originally the property of Judge 
Samuel Sewell of Boston, and contains memoranda written by 
him. 

Among interesting and valuable gifts received during the 
year perhaps first place should be given to that of Miss 
Gertrude O. Lewis, from whom ninety volumes and pamphlets 
were received, including the National Cyclopedia of American 
Biography, complete in fourteen volumes, a number of 
volumes of genealogy, several sets of historical magazines and 
Carringtou's Battles of the American Revolution. From the 
American Historical Society of New York we have received 
several of their valuable publications, including Representative 
Citizens of Connecticut in three volumes, Memorials of Maine 
and German American families; from Yale University Ex- 
tracts from Ezra Stiles' itineraries, 1 755-1 794, Documentary 
history of Yale, 1701-1745, both edited by our life member, 
Dr. Dexter; from Clara A. Coolidge of Boston, widow of 
Thomas Jefferson Coolidge, Jr., a superb volume on Thomas 
Jefferson, architect; from the Maine Historical Society three 
volumes of its Documentary History of Maine; from the 
National Museum of Brazil three volumes of its valuable 
Archives; from the Virginia State Library a continuation of 
its valuable bulletins. 



Sir Gilbert Parker of London has continued the sending of 
books, pamphlets, and official publications, setting forth the 
part being taken by and the views of the entente allies in the 
present great war. Many of these publications make fascinat- 
ing, although sometimes gruesome reading. A few publica- 
tions taking the part of the central powers have also been 
received. 

A copy of the recently published Roll and Journal of Con- 
necticut soldiers in Queen Anne's war, 1710, 171 1, giving the 
only known list of Connecticut soldiers in that war, has been 
presented to us. 

Messrs. Geer, the Hartford Printing Co., have made their 
annual valuable donation of directories from all parts of the 
country, consisting this year of 110 volumes. 

The records of the Connecticut Laud Co., organized at 
Hartford in 1795, are contained in the recent publication of the 
Western Reserve Historical Society, and other documents of 
interest to Connecticut people are to be found in earlier publi- 
cations of the same Society. 

Among books of Connecticut interest that have been 
received are the History of Berlin from our member, Miss 
Galpin, and Mrs. Newton's book of stories entitled "Once 
upon a time in Connecticut " from the Connecticut Society of 
Colonial Dames." 

Through the courtesy of Vice-President Bowen the Society 
has been able to secure the privilege of copying the diary of 
John May, one of the early settlers of Woodstock, covering 
the years 1710 to 1717. In addition to the " line a day " 
entries of doings and happenings there are many pages of 
accounts, showing what was used and the price of labor and 
various commodities in Connecticut two centuries ago. 
Numerous words now obsolete and quaint usages of other 
words occur in the diary. 

Our accessions for the year, without taking account of the 
manuscripts, have been by gift, including the publications of 
other institutions to which our own publications are sent, 430 
volumes, 529 pamphlets and 60 miscellaneous items; by pur- 
chase 84 volumes, 74 pamphlets and 47 miscellaneous; by ex- 
change one miscellaneous; making a total of 514 volumes, 603 
pamphlets and 10S miscellaneous, and a grand total of 1,225 
items.

The total number of our readers for the past year has been 
3,010, a decrease of about twelve per cent, as compared with 
the previous year. This decrease may be partially accounted 
for by the long continued absence of several who for some 
years had been almost daily visitors at the library. 

The family genealogies added to the library during the 
past year are x\bbe, Ackley, Anderson and others, Andrews, 
Ayres. Babcock and Main, Barber, Belmont, Briggs, Brown, 
Chadbourne, Chase, Clarke, Converse, Coolidge, Cummings, 
Dwight and others, Eddy, Ela, Fentpn, Fenwick Ancestry, 
Ford, Gallatin and Nicholson Ancestry, Greene, Iiawes, 



Henry, Hooper, Huntington, Hurd, Lewis, Lincoln, Lock- 
wood, Mason, Moore, Morrell, Xewkirk and others, Paddle- 
ford, Pinkham, Perkins, Pomeroy, Pratt, Rand, Robinson, 
Roome, Ryerson, Sampson, Shaw, Slade, Spragne, Tenney, 
Tower, Ware, Whitmarsh, Winchester. 

The necessity for increase of shelf space to accommodate the 
growth of our library is greater eacli year than it was the 
previous year; while the lack of space for the older and less 
used portions of the library, which has been mentioned in 
previous reports, still continues. A movement was started 
recently to endeavor to increase our shelf space, but the sud- 
den death of our President brought it to a standstill for the 
time being. 

In closing, I wish to express my feeling of personal loss in 
the death of our honored president, Rev. Samuel Hart, who 
had been an officer of the Society during the whole period of 
my membership and had filled our highest official position 
during the last sixteen years, and of whom both as a friend 
and as my superior officer I can speak only with the pleasantest 
recollections and in the highest terms. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

present's CTbbress, 



A year ago you honored me with an election as President 
of the Connecticut Historical Society. I regarded it as a great 
honor to be in succession to the many distinguished men who 
had preceded me in the office. Reasons were given to me why 
I could be of service, and I accepted the office in that hope. 

Tonight I am expected under your practice as I under- 
stand to make a report of our activities and record of the past 
year. 

I wish- to say frankly that I have not been able to render 
the service that I had hoped to accomplish. I have been 
hardly more than a presiding officer at your monthly meetings. 

This Society has had in its purpose a great field and a great 
work, and much has been done along these lines in the past. 
In looking back over ibJp personnel of the men who in the past 
accomplished mucV ^-vihe Society I have found many most 
distinguished names: several Governors of the State, the 
Episcopal Bishop of this Diocese, members of Congress, men 
high in the legislative branch of our State Government, men 
always active in whatever promoted the interests of our City, 
antiquarians, historians and prominent men of affairs. 

After my temporary acceptance of the presidency I was very 
anxious to secure for the office in my place a man who had 
earned a lasting reputation as a distinguished historian, a man 
well known not only in our own local circles, but widely 
throughout our state and among the historical societies of our 
country. Many of you will remember that I conferred with 
you to see if it was possible to secure his acceptance of the 
office which I held. 

Unfortunately, death has removed him from our circle, and 
the inquiry returns: where can we find a man properly quali- 
fied to fill this position? Until we find him, how can I best 
serve the Society ? 



As a corollary to the old saying that "A new broom sweeps 
clean," is it not true that a new official should bring in some 
new ideas and suggest more or less criticism upon conditions 
as he finds them to exist ? 

The criticism which I have to offer is not one of persons nor 
a criticism of any work which has been accomplished nor of 
that which has been neglected by any officer or member of this 
Society. It is a criticism of present conditions resulting 
largely from the impoverished condition of our finances. 

This Society was organized " for the purpose of discovering, 
procuring and preserving materials for the civil, ecclesiastical 
and natural history of the United States, and especially of the 
State of Connecticut." To accomplish this much has been 
done in the past, and much remains to be done in the future, 
but nothing can be accomplished without sufficient funds 
therefor. 

We have to-day two funds, — a publication fund, and a general 
administration fund. 

In the first or Publication Fund we have on hand today a 
balance of $7,459.90, an increase of about $950 during the 
year. This will be somewhat reduced by the expense of the 
publication of the "Governor Thomas Fitch" papers, which 
are now being prepared and edited by Mr. Bates. 

Is it not advisable at this time to consider the question of 
other publications ? 

It has been suggested by one of our Vice-Presidents that we 
should undertake a work which several other Historical Socie- 
ties are now doing, — that is the issuing of photographic copies 
of very early newspapers. 

We have a splendid opportunity here in our Society in such 
publication of the early issues of the Hartford " Courant." 

It has also been suggested that we undertake the publica- 
tion of a somewhat fragmentary history of one of the oldest 
towns in our state and county, the material for which was pre- 
pared by one well qualified for the work, who has recently 
died, and which is the only material now available. 

Both of these works are in the line of the purposes of our 
organization; and in Mr. Bates we have a man exceedingly 
well qualified to edit, superintend and issue such publications. 

In our General Account we have a balance on hand of 
$2,371, an increase of over $800 during the year. 



This brings me to a friendly criticism upon our present 
arrangement for inspection, examination and preservation of 
our books, manuscripts and articles of great value in our col- 
lection. Our reading and consulting room is now in first-class 
condition, well adapted for its purpose. Our storerooms are, 
however, in a chaotic condition owing to the fact that we have 
not sufficient stacks and shelving for the proper collection and 
exhibition of our books and pamphlets. 

We have some most valuable papers which seldom see the 
light of day. How many of you know that we have the orig- 
inal contract executed with the Marquis de Lafayette under 
which he came to America to assist our forces in the Revolu- 
tion ? This document was deposited witht the Connecticut 
Historical Society by the United States Government. It is 
safely preserved in one of our vaults, as it should be. 

My suggestion is that a handsome photographic copy of 
that paper should be obtained and then framed and rmng in a 
prominent place in our gallery where it can be examined from 
time to time by those who may take an interest therein. So 
of mam* other very important papers which cannot be contin- 
uously exhibited in our gallery through fear of their destruc- 
tion by fire. I think photographic copies of every one of them 
should be made, framed and hung. 

There are possibly some other treasures which w 7 e have which 
can only be exhibited in the original. I would suggest the 
purchase of two small glass movable cases mounted on rubber 
wheels, so that the cases can be rolled out from the vaults in 
the morning and rolled back upon the closing of the rooms in 
the afternoon, to the end that the public may have an oppor- 
tunity to see these things which have been given to our 
Society for exhibition and not merely for preservation. In this 
way we can exhibit them and at the same time properly pro- 
tect them. 

And this leads me to another suggestion. I think it was 
not intended that our Society should become a general museum 
of curios. We can never keep abreast of the important muse- 
ums of our country. 

We have some articles of great historical interest, which 
inspire to patriotism, and which are properly exhibited in our 
gallery, but I think that you will agree with me that there 
are manv things there exhibited which have no historical 



interest. Some of them belong more in the line of natural 
history. 

It is hoped by many that in the near future a Natural 
History Building may be added to the group under the control 
of the Wadsvvorth Athenaeum, and if such a building is erected 
I think it will be very desirable to ask for one room therein 
where the— Connecticut Historical Society can gather and 
exhibit its curios and its collection along the lines of natural 
history. 

In our storerooms I would suggest putting in either steel 
stacks or, if they are too expensive at this time, that wooden 
stacks be provided for the proper collection, exhibition and 
arrangement of the books and papers now stored there. 

In my opinion, the wooden stacks will add nothing to the 
fire risk over the risk that now exists. 

I desire also to impress upon you the advisability of increas- 
ing our friendly association and collaboration with other socie- 
ties organized for similar purposes. We have, I believe, and 
always have had a Vice-President from every County in the 
State, but with the exception of the Honorable Vice-President 
from Fairfield County and the distinguished Vice-President 
from Middlesex County, I think we have seldom been favored 
at our meetings with the presence of any of the Vice- Presidents 
from the other Counties. 

I would like to get into more active friendly relations with 
the Historical Societies in the other Counties. I would like 
Committees appointed to make friendly visits from time to 
time, giving notice in advance so that we may meet the offi- 
cials of the respective Societies. I would like also to extend 
to them on behalf of this Society an invitation for a return 
visit when we may entertain them here in Hartford. 

I want to help and I ask your assistance to put the Connec- 
ticut Historical Society on the historical visitorial map. I 
would like also to exchange with them not only our publica- 
tions, but our photographic copies of important papers in our 
custody, for instance, the Lafayette contract. 

It will take some of our general balance on hand to pay 
these expenses, but the result, however, in my opinion, will 
fully justify the expenditure. 

We are fortunate to-night in the election as Corresponding 
Secretary of a literary gentleman, who I assume will take 



pleasure in advancing our acquaintance with other Societies 
through friendly correspondence. Along these general lines 
there is work for all of us. 

The above are some of the somewhat crude and disconnected 
ideas of your President for the past year, who I understand 
is recommended for a continuance in office for another year. 
If I remain by your pleasure I desire to be something more 
than a bump on a historical log; and therefore I have thrown 
out these suggestions to you for such consideration as they 
may deserve. 

I understand that it is customary for the President in his 
address to recapitulate the activities of the Society, giving also 
a record of its membership during the past year. The follow- 
ing have been furnished to me by our Secretary: 

PAPERS READ BEFORE THE SOCIETY. 

The following papers have been read before the Society at 
its monthly meetings:

a life member, have died, and the previous death of one cor- 
responding member has been noted. Four active members 
have resigned and the names of three have been dropped from

have, removed two of our ex -officio members. The name of 



one ex-officio member has been added to our roll; seven active 
members have been elected, and one who had been an annual 
paying member became a life member. The Society now 
numbers 18 ex officio members, 329 active members, of whom 
33 are life members; one honorary and six corresponding 
members; a total of 353 members of all classes, one of the 
ex officio being also an active member. 

OBITUARY. 

The death on December 23, 19 16, of our corresponding

Mass.,. at the advanced age of ninety-eight years, removed a 
well known antiquarian whose name had been on our rolls for

14, 1917. 

Lena Louise Barbour, of Hartford, wife of Collin H. 
Barbour, elected 1914, died January 1, 1918. 

It will be noticed that our membership has decreased during 
the year. Can we not commence an active campaign to 
increase our membership ? We need not only the financial 
assistance, which last year amounted to $747, but more than 
that we need the literary and. business assistance, of which 
there is so great an abundance in storage in Hartford.

librarian's Heport. 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

The activities and growth of this society and its library 
during the year now closing, as has been the case with perhaps 
every similar society and library, have been unfavorably 
affected by this world crisis of war through which we are now 
passing. There has been a smaller number of readers than 
usual, and a less number of donors. We are living so much 
in the present, and making so much and so important history 
from day to day, that interest in earlier history has for the 
moment been to some extent relegated to the background. 

Because of coal shortage and the wish to conserve, the rooms 
of the society were closed during the so called " heatless 
Mondays" of the past winter; our exhibition hall was closed 
on December fifth and was not reopened again, except on the 
days of the society's monthly meetings, until April first. Dur- 
ing the same period the lights in the chandelier in the library 
were not used, except during the monthly meetings. 

The special work to which much time has been devoted 
during the year by your librarian and editor, has been the 
gathering, preparing for the press, arranging and editing of 
the correspondence and documents of the Colony of Connecti- 
cut, chiefly of an official nature, during the governorship of 
Thomas Fitch. This covers the period from May 1754 to 
May 1766, when his action regarding the enforcement of the 
obnoxious Stamp Act caused his defeat for the governorship. 
The documents gathered will make two volumes of our " Col- 
lections.' ' .The first of these is entirely completed and ready 
for the press, and about 150 pages of it are already printed or 
in type. The work on the second volume is well along and 
will probably be completed by the coming autumn. Much of 
the actual copying of the documents for these two volumes has 
been done bv Miss Alice M. Gav. In addition to -the Fitch 



papers in this society's archives, copies of a large number were 
received from the State Paper Office and other depositories in 
London, from the Massachusetts Historical Society, from the 
Connecticut State Library and from the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Achives, and copies of a smaller number from sundry 
other sources. As would be expected, a considerable number 
of the documents of this period relate to the war with the 
French and Indians. Among the documents received from 
London are copies of the rolls of several Connecticut compa- 
nies, which are not found in the society's two volumes of 
French and Indian War Rolls; also the complete rolls of two 
regiments on which the town whence every man came is noted. 
The plans of the annual campaigns, the urgent calls for troops, 
the expenses and sacrifices, the numerous failures and disap- 
pointments and the occasional successes of the war will all be 
pictured in these volumes; as will also the ending of the con- 
troversy over the Spanish boat in New London harbor, which 
had cost Roger Wolcott the governorship, and the excitement 
over the passage and expected endeavor to enforce the Stamp 
Act. 

From the estate of Miss Mary K. Talcott, the second woman 
to be elected to membership in the society, we have received 
by her direction a small handsome pastel portrait of Miss 
Talcott's great-great-uncle, Jared Goodrich (i 769-1804) of 
Glastonbury. He is represented half length in a brilliant blue 
coat, a w r hite vest with dark dots, a ruffled shirt and high 
cravat, and a gray w r ig gathered into a peruke at the back. 
He is understood to have been the owner of a sailing sloop, 
and the portrait was probably done abroad by a French artist. 
We also received a small half length portrait of her grand- 
father, Russell Talcott of Glastonbury. He is shown in a 
black suit with high white collar and cravat and with his dark 
hair curling low over his forehead. The w r ork appears to be 
water color executed with a very fine brush. The face is 
slightly tinted and freckles appear to have been put on it in a 
most realistic manner. Another gift from Miss Talcott's 
estate is a rather plain but delicately built roundabout or cor- 
ner chair which belonged to her great-great-grandfather, 
Col. Elizur Talcott (1709-1797) of Glastonbury. He was a 
man of considerable wealth and prominence and saw service 
in the French War and the Revolution. 



Another of our members, Miss Mary Clark, has bequeathed 
to us two handsome chairs of the Chippendale style and period. 
One of them, called by her a '* Washington chair.' dates from 
about the beginning of the Revolution, It has for its back 
four bow shaped rails so cut that they seem to entwine at their 
centers. The other, called the Seymour chair, dating from a 
little later period, has the usual wide splat in the back cut in 
a scroll pattern and at the center of the top a pineapple 
design. 

From Miss Mary Dexter of Danielson, now deceased, we 
have received an interesting little oak box of American make 
dating from about the year 1700. It is unusually small, being 
less than one foot in length. The front is slightly carved and 
colored and bears the letters E. H. As the Hales were among 
Miss Dexter' s ancestors, the letters may indicate that the 
original owner of the box was one of that family. 

The family of the late Mrs. Arthur L. Goodrich has given 
us a handsome colonial slant top desk which had descended to 
Mrs. Goodrich from her great-great-grandfather, Col. Thomas 
Knowlton, of Ashford, the well known patriot of the Revolu- 
tion. With its handsome brasses, its unusual arrangement of 
two long and four short drawers in the lower part and the. 
peculiar "well" in the desk part, it is of much interest as a 
piece of furniture, aside from its historical association. 

From Mrs. Sara T. Kinney we received a handsome table 
top made from a cross section of live oak. It had been pre- 
sented to her by the Veteran Association St. Mary's Cannon- 
eers of Louisiana in gratitude for her care of the old flag of the 
company, and in recognition of its return by her husband, the 
late Maj. John C. Kinney. Mrs. Kinney has also given us a 
number of war and other medals and a collection of badges. 

Miss Mary E. Hastings of New Haven has given us a minia- 
ture portrait of William Henry Lawrence, who died at the age 
of three years, son of William and Alice Adams Lawrence 
and grandson of treasurer John Lawrence. Thechild's mother 
had been affianced to Nathan Hale, the martyr spy. 

Among books of Connecticut interest that have come to hand, 
in addition to numerous state and departmental publications, 
may be mentioned the New Haven town records, 1 649-1 662, 
from the New Haven Colony Historical Society; Vital records 
of New Haven, 1649-1S50, volume 1; Records of the original

book, the first edition of which is not known to be extant; 
Chronicles of a Connecticut farm, located in Salem, by Mary 
E. Perkins, one of an edition of fifty copies, given by Mary 
K. Talcott. 

The American Historical Society of New York has presented 
us with the Encyclopedia of Connecticut biography, Encyclo- 
pedia of biography of New York, Encyclopedia of Pennsylva- 
nia biography, Genealogical history of Fayette and Greene 
Counties, Pennsylvania, Standard history of freemasonry in 
New York and Stackpole's History of New Plampshire, in all

Last spring Mr. Trescott C. Barnes of Riverton, one of our 
members, finding himself physically incapacitated for carrying 
on his genealogical work, presented us with the manuscript 
Barnes records upon the compilation of which he had labored 
for nearly half a century, whenever time could be spared from 
his regular business of a lumberman. Many times after 
laboring all day 'in the woods, has he spent a good portion of 
the night in work upon these records, and the correspondence 
which the gathering of them entailed. They include manu- 
scripts of the " Barnes families of Long Island," V Thomas 



Barnes of Hartford genealogy," "Thomas Barnes of Marl- 
borough, "Mass., and some of his descendants," " Descendants 
of Stephen Barnes of Branford, Conn.," and " Detached notes " 
on Barnes genealogy. All of these are fully indexed. A list 
of addresses of all correspondents accompanied the genealogies. 
Mr. Barnes has retained for the present the manuscripts of the 
family from which he is descended, that of " Thomas Barnes 
of New Haven." Accompanying these manuscripts, Mr. 
Barnes presented us with numerous copies, for disposal by 
exchange or sale, of the "Barnes family year book, volumes 
i, 2, 3, edited and issued by him when secretary and gene- 
alogist of the Barnes Family Association. 

Genealogies of the Barnes, Campbell, Cobb, Corbett, dish- 
ing, Emmons, Genuug, Lambert, Lawson, Lincoln, Miller, 
Mitchell, Montgomery, Palmer, Park, Skidmore, Talbot, 
Turner, and Yale families have been added during the year. 
Historical books, particularly genealogies, have been affected 
by the present general rise in prices, and the prices now asked 
for many of them are prohibitive of their purchase unless 
funds for the purpose are almost unlimited. 

Our collection of early Connecticut imprints has been 
increased by the addition of publications of the dates of 1761, 
1764, 1785, 1789, 1790, i793( 2 ). 1794(2), i797> !798» i8oo> 
[1800?]. 

From the Hartford Printing Company, EHhu Geer's Sons, 
we have received their annual donation of directories of other 
cities and towns, comprising ninety-seven volumes; and from 
the family of the late Everett S. Geer thirty-six miscellaneous 
volumes and pamphlets, besides a few duplicates. 

The purchases from the income of the Lucy A. Brainard 
Book Fund are the following ten volumes: 

Town records of Topsfield, Mass., vol. 1, 1659-1737. 

Vital records of Charlemont, Mass. 

Vital records of East Bridgewater, Mass. 

Vital records of Gloucester, Mass., Vol-. 1. 

Vital records of Hard wick, Mass. 

Vital records of Mil ford, Mass. 

Vital records of Salem, Mass., vol. 2. 

Vital records of Stoneliani, Mass. 

Vital records of Windsor, Mas-s. 

Waters, T. F. Ipswich in the Massachusetts Hay Colony, vol. 2. 



The Vital records of New Haven, 1 649-1 S50, vol. 1, and 
Records and files of the Quarterly Court of Essex County, 
Mass., vol. 5, 1 672-1 674, have been purchased with income 
from the Charles J. Hoadly Fund. 

The accessions for the year have been by gift 3S0 volumes, 
699 pamphlets and 145 miscellaneous including leaflets, procla- 
mations, bank bills, broadsides and medals; by exchange 
four volumes and three pamphlets; by purchase 137 volumes, 
157 pamphlets and rive miscellaneous, including the twelve 
volumes credited to the Brainard and Hoadly funds. This 
makes a total of 521 volumes, 859 pamphlets and 150 miscel- 
laneous, and a grand total of 1,530 items; about twenty-five 
per cent, more than last year. 

The total number of our readers during the year has been 
2,494. This is a decrease of about seventeen per cent, from 
the number for last year. 

I venture to call attention again to the deplorable lack of 
necessary shelf room and space for our books, in consequence 
of which the work of the library is seriously hampered and the 
conditions are growing worse from year to year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

- 



prcstbent's Ct66ress. 



In presenting to yon a report for the past year of the activi- 
ties of the Society I regret that my report is necessarily more 
of a negative one than one of positive accomplishment. 

Last January I received the honor of the election as Presi- 
dent of the Wadsworth Athenaeum, of which corporation I had 
been the First Vice-President for many years. 

In view of the relative interests of the two corporations 
under the deed of gift of Daniel Wadsworth and also of the 
supplementary contracts between this Society and the Wads- 
worth Athenaeum, it seems to me that it would not be proper 
for one person to be at the same time president of both. 

My knowledge of the relations of the Athenaeum to the con- 
stituent corporations in the building, to the Colt Memorial 
and the Morgan Memorial, seemed to require that I should 
remain in the service of the Athenaeum. 

Therefore on the 3d day of February, 1919, I handed to the 
Secretary my resignation as President of this Society, giving 
in full my reasons therefor. Your Society very graciously 
appreciated my position, but requested that I would continue 
as President until the annual meeting, so that it might have 
the longer time in which to select a president, and I have 
therefore very cheerfully acquiesced in the request. 

Under the circumstances I did not deem it proper to urge 
the execution of many of the suggestions which I had made 
in my last annual report with reference to matters of this 
Society, believing it better to leave the same for the approval 
and for the execution — where approved — by my successor. 

Personally 'I still believe that the reconstruction of our 
Library of Reference is absolutely necessary, and this will 
necessitate largely increased shelf accommodation and the 
rearrangement of many of our recent acquisitions. I also 
still believe that some scheme can be devised for the exhibi- 
tion of manv of our valuable treasures which now necessarilv 



are kept in our vaults and of which there are but few — even 
of our members — who have knowledge thereof. 

The publication of many of our valuable papers has contin- 
ued under the able editorship of Mr. Bates. I fear that, except 
in this line, we have not progressed. 

I still think that we should make our existence better known 
among the historical societies of the State and of other states; 
that this should be done by more frequent correspondence; by 
visitation and by interchange of speakers and reports. 

I have taken the liberty of repeating my suggestions of a 
year ago so that they may come to the knowledge of my suc- 
cessor as subjects for his consideration. 

It is customary, I understand, to make formal report of the 
events happening during the year. The following have been 
furnished me by our Secretary.

STATISTICS OF MEMBERSHIP. 

Five persons have been elected to active membership in the 
Societv during the year now closing, and one corresponding

membership of all classes.

Mr. President a?id Members of the Society: 

It is true of the year now closing, as it was of the preceding 
year, that the use, growth and general activities of the library 
have been unfavorably affected by the war crisis through which 
we have been passing. Many of those who otherwise might 
have been our readers were busy with varied war activities; 
the general rise in prices has placed many books, particularly 
the new genealogies, at almost prohibitive prices, and the 
interest in local history, genealogy and kindred lines of study 
appears not to have been as great or as widespread. 

Our annual report for 191 7-1 91 8, a pamphlet of forty-three 
pages recounting the society's activities for the year, was pub- 
lished last July. The seventeenth volume of our series of 
"Collections," which was noted in the report of last year as 
in press, has been completed and issued. It comprises the 
official correspondence and documents of the Colony during 
the first part of Thomas Fitch's governorship of Connecticut, 
1754-1758. It makes, with the preliminary matter and index, 
a volume of 460 pages. . The cop}' for the second and conclud- 
ing volume of the "Fitch Papers" has been prepared, and 
the first part of it is already in the printer's hands. The work 
on these volumes has occupied much time during the past year, 
as has also the arrangement and listing of the genealogical man- 
uscripts and the arrangement of the historical manuscripts 
which have been received. 

Mr. William R. C. Corson of Hartford has presented us with 
a large picture of the Landing of the Atlantic Cable at Trinity 
Bay, August 5, 1856, painted by George W. Flagg. The 
painting was made for the donor's great-grandfather, James 
Brewster of New Haven, and came to him recently from 
the estate of his uncle, James Brewster Cone of Flartford, who 



— u 

for many years was a member of the Society. By agreement 
of all the parties concerned the painting has been loaned for 
the present to the Wadsworth Atheiueum, and is now hung in 
the Morgan Memorial. 

A portrait of the late Seth H. Clark, a well known wood 
engraver and life long resident of Hartford, has been presented 
by his son, Mr. Fred Spencer Clark of New Haven and Hart- 
ford. The painting is believed to be the work of some local 
artist. 

We have loaned to the Wadsworth Athenaeum for exhibition 
the following articles: the "Washington chair," so called, 
bequeathed by Miss Mary Clark of Hartford; the silver com- 
munion service of the Westchester church, presented by Mrs. 
Leverett Brainard of Hartford as a memorial of her husband, 
Hon. Leverett Brainard and of his sister, Lucy A. Brainard; 
a silver cup or "can" once the property of Thomas Welles 
(1692-1767) of Glastonbury, presented by Miss Mary Dexter 
of Danielson; a silver creamer once the property oLGov. Jon- 
athan Trumbull, Sr. , presented by Mrs. Jane (McClellau) 
Weaver; a pewter tankard inscribed " The Gift of John Hall 
Esq'r to the Second Church in Wallingford 1725," and 
another smaller pewter tankard without inscription. 

It seems worthy of note that this library contains eighteen 
incunabula — books printed in the fifteenth century — and that 
three of these, as is shown from a check list recently issued by 
the American Bibliographical Society, are the only copies 
known to be owned in the United States or Canada. All of 
these incunabula came to the society from the library of Rev. 
Thomas Robbins, its first librarian. 

On the recommendation of President Gross the Society has 
subscribed for the " Chronicles of America " series, now being 
issued by the Yale Press. Ours is believed to be the only 
set of this work owned in Hartford. 

Our unrivaled collection of eighteenth century Connecticut 
imprints has been increased by the addition of eight items, two 
of them almanacs, of the following years: 1 745( ?) , 1770, 17S5, 
1.787, 1790, 1794, 1795, 179S. 

Among the books of Connecticut interest that we have 
acquired are Connecticut in Transition, 1775-1818, by Richard 
J. Purcell; Early American Folk Pottery including Bennington 



by our late member, Albert Hastings Pitkin, presented by 
Mrs. Pitkin, who completed the work after her husband's 
death; New England and the Bavarian Illnmaniti. presented 
by Vernon Stauffer, its author; Connecticut session laws, 
1 731-1749, reissued in facsimile, presented (in part) by Albert 
C. Bates; A Selection from the Miscellaneous Historical Papers 
of Fifty Years, presented by Franklin B. Dexter, their author; 
Life and Letters of Simeon Baldwin, presented by Hon. Simeon 
K. Baldwin, its author; Papers of the New Haven Colons- 
Historical Society, vol. 9, presented by the society; Ancient 
Burying Grounds of Waterbury, presented by the compiler, 
Miss Katharine A. Prichard; History of East Haven by Sarah 
E. Hughes. We have also secured wall maps, published sixty 
or more years ago, of Litchfield, New Plaven and Tolland 
counties. 

From the Hartford Printing Company, Elih.11 Geer Sons, we 
have received a valuable annual gift of directories of different 
cities, sixty-four in all. A large number of publications on 
the war and related subjects have been received from various 
sources. A goodly number of additions has been made to our 
collection of Connecticut almanacs. 

The printed genealogies added to our collection are of the 
families of Almy, Andrews, Barrett, Borden, Corbett, Doe, 
Fisher, Gary, Gillmore, Higgins, Hubbard, Jones, Northrup, 
Porter, Seymour, Stone, and Vaughan. 

The purchases made with the income of the Lucy A. Brainard 
Book Fund are as follows: 

Vital records of Carlisle, Mass. 
Vital records of Harvard, Mass. 
Vital records of Shirley, Mass. 
Vital records of West Newbury, Mass. 
Vital records of Westport, Mass. 

Records and files of the Quarterly Court of Essex County, 
Mass., vol. 6, 1 675-1 678, was purchased with income from the 
Charles J. Hoadly Fund, and the Gregory Stone Genealogy 
with income from the William F. J. Board man Fund. 

The accessions to the library during the year, exclusive of 
manuscripts, have been by gift 313 volumes, 756 pamphlets 
and 122 miscellaneous items; by purchase 117 volumes, 108 
pamphlets and 21 miscellaneous, including the seven volumes 



credited to particular funds. This makes a total of 430 vol- 
umes, S64 pamphlets and 143 miscellaneous, and a grand total 
of 1,437 items. This is about seven percent, less than the 
total for last year. 

The manuscript material acquired during the year is of wide 
and varied interest, and is probably the most important that 
has been received during any single year of my connection 
with the society — now a period of three decades — and possibly 
with two exceptions the most important during any year of 
the society's existence. A summarizing of some of the most 
notable documents and series, in addition to the more formal 
list, may be of interest. 

Mr. Donald Lines Jacobus, a well known genealogist of 
Xew Haven, in May of last year, as he was soon to enter mili- 
tary service, placed with us his extensive collection of genea- 
logical compilations and copies of vital records, principally of 
the towns of Xew Haven County. These were received as a 
gift, but were made subject to certain conditions. The princi- 
pal condition is that during the lifetime of the donor's mother 
a fee " of one dollar per hour or fraction of an hour " shall be 
charged by the Society for their use, and the amount so 
received is to be paid to Mrs. Jacobus. A second condition is 
that Mr. Jacobus shall have the privilege of temporarily 
removing any of these records from the custody of the society 
for the purpose of amplifying and correcting them. 

In June Mrs. Julius Gay of Farmington presented us with 
the genealogical and local historical collections gathered and 
arranged by her late husband, who was an honored member 
of the society for more than thirty years, and for many years 
one of its officers. Mr. Gay's special interest was in his native 
town of Farmington, and for half a century he had gathered 
historical material relating to it and genealogical material 
relating to its families and to the descendants of those who 
had gone out from its borders. His interest was not entirely 
confined to Farmington, for he copied records from nearly all 
the nearby towns, and from not a few located at some distance 
from his home. All were copied, arranged and indexed in the 
methodical, painstaking manner that was characteristic of the 
man. They comprise So volumes of copies and compilations 
of records, historical material and indexes, and genealogical 



compilations of 90 different families. Some of these compila- 
tions cover not more than two or three pages, while others 
form a good sized (unbound) volume of more than one hun- 
dred pages. During the same month Mrs. Frank A. Hamil- 
ton of Warehouse Point gave us the genealogical manuscripts 
of her brother, the late James Allen Kibbe, a well known gen- 
ealogist, and for twenty-two years a member of the society. 
These comprise genealogical gatherings on 22 families, some 
of them well compiled and others consisting of unarranged 
memoranda; also numerous genealogical note books, miscella- 
neous memoranda and letters. From Mr. James Shepard of 
New Britain, who has been on our membership roll for more 
than a quarter century, we have received genealogical com- 
pilations and notes on 27 families, four ancestral charts and 
numerous miscellaneous genealogical notes. Mr. Lawrence 
VanAlstyne of Sharon, for twenty-four years a life member of 
the society, is now retiring from genealogical work and has 
given us the extensive collection of genealogical material, 
chiefly gathered and compiled by him for and in cooperation 
with the late William Ogden Wheeler of Sharon, a former 
life member of the society. This material relates primarily 
to the various families of Ogdens throughout the country, and 
is so extensive that it seems as if scarcely a person of the name 
could have escaped; but a number of other families are also 
included. A number of the volumes are in duplicate for 
apparently one copy did not always satisfy Mr. Wheeler's 
ideas. The books range in size from thick folios, down through 
quartos of moderate thickness to small, thin octavos. Large 
and small, including duplicates, genealogies arranged in 
" parts," a series of field note books and about a dozen charts, 
they comprise 200 volumes or lesser divisions.. The wealth of 
Ogden genealogical material here gathered can scarcely be 
overestimated. A series of Owen family papers presented by 
Miss Lena Owen of Suffield are interesting for the local histori- 
cal material they contain, including data about copper ore 
mined at Simsburv. A considerable number of Bristol deeds 
and town papers, presented by our member, Garrett \V. F. 
Blanchfield, which once belonged to a former member now 
deceased, Hon. Roswell Atkins, contain many items of local 
interest. The autograph poems by Hon. Theodore Tilton 
and Mrs. Elizabeth Akers and the series of autograph letters { 



18 

of prominent men of the civil war period, presented by the 
late Gilbert A. Tracy of Putnam, through his daughter Mary 
Clemmer Tracy, are of much interest and represent considerable 
value to the collector of autographs. Our president, Charles 
E. Gross, Esq., showed his appreciation of the Society as the 
proper custodian of valuable documents when he presented us 
last autumn with the extremely important series of letters 
comprising the correspondence of the late Col. Samuel Colt of 
Hartford. These letters cover approximately the period of 
1830-1861; and range from the time when Colt as a young 
and struggling inventor was endeavoring to establish in a small 
way the manufacture of his fire arms, to the time when he 
was having large and important dealings with the United 
States government, and extending his activities to foreign 
countries. The variety and importance of his interests will 
appear more in detail in the list of manuscripts printed on a 
later page. A few weeks ago Miss Freda D. Sanford of Derby, 
acting as executrix, placed with us the extensive correspond- 
ence of her father, the late Hon. Henry Sheltou Sanford 
(1823-1891) of Derby, diplomat, attorney, author and busi- 
ness man. This correspondence is so voluminous that I have 
not as yet had opportunity to arrange or even to examine it. 
It is without doubt of wide and varied historical interest, as 
would be expected where its recipient had been officially con- 
nected on behalf of the United States with several of the prin- 
cipal Courts of Europe, in addition to having interests in the 
Congo region of Africa, in Venezuela, in the early efforts to 
construct a canal or railroad across Panama, in the west- 
ern lands of the United States and in the development of 
Florida. There was recently accessioned and arranged an im- 
portant collection of manuscripts relating to the War of 1812, 
which had been received some time previously from the estate 
of Miss Margaret M. VanDeurseu of Middletowu. They all 
relate to Connecticut, the greater part of them to Captain 
William VanDeursen's company, and the)' show record of 
service by many men whose names do not appear in the offi- 
cially published record. The bunch of miscellaneous docu- 
ments from Stonington and vicinity are from the same source 
as those noted in the report of last year, and serve to supple- 
ment that collection. While of a very general nature they con- 
tain some records and letters that fully justify their purchase. 



A few other manuscripts have been purchased at very low 
prices.

Ancestral lines of Leonard B. Almy, M. D., of Norwich. 

The total number of our readers during the past year, count- 
ing the same person but once in a day, was 2,341. This is a 
decrease of about six per cent, from the number for the pre- 
vious year. 

The most crying need of the Society to-day is for more space, 
particularly more shelf room. Our work is badly hampered 
by lack of opportunity to shelve and arrange the treasures that 
we already have, and every new accession, every gift or pur- 
chase serves to increase our crowded condition. Unless some 
relief comes to us it is to be feared that the growth and activi- 
ties of the library must soon be greatly curtailed, and it is 
even possible that they may be completely smothered by the 
superabundance of our riches combined with lack of space. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

presibent's Ctbbrcss. 



During the year which has just closed the Connecticut 
Historical Society has pursued its usual way of peaceful and 
orderly progress, under the experienced conduct of its capable 
aud industrious Librarian and Recording Secretary. To this 
progress the present incumbent of your Presidency has thus 
far offered equally little help or hindrance. The work of the 
Society, and the possibility of its development have, neverthe- 
less, been a. subject of zealous contemplation. 

In this relation I wish to give some expression, — though it 
must necessarily be inadequate, — to my feeling of gratitude 
toward the members of this Society for overlooking my defici- 
encies and permitting me to occupy for a time this place of 
honor, which affords a delightfully congenial medium for in- 
dulgence in a favorite diversion. 

That the experiment may in some way contribute to the 
usefulness of the Connecticut Historical Society I earnestly 
hope. 

Many other members of this Society know more than I 
about the particular field for helpfulness which belongs to it, 
and the limitations, if any, which should be set to its expan- 
sion. To me it seems that the Society has a prospect for even 
greater service to this community than it has furnished in its 
very useful past. This Library is centrally located, and easily 
accessible for an hour of reading or research in the day of even 
a busy man, for whom that form of relaxation has attractions 
stronger than those of some more popular recreations. I have 
never visited these rooms that I have not seen here men of 
this type, besides men who are enjoying hours of lettered ease 
in their years of retirement, ladies from both the bus)' aud the 
leisure classes, and often children and adults, — townsfolk or 
strangers, — examining the spoils of time in which our collection 
is so rich. 



To all, this Library and this collection present one of the 
many means for imparting a knowledge of the arduous and 
costly process by which the government under which we live 
has been established, developed and preserved. In this critical 
period of our national life no agency whatsoever is to be lightly 
esteemed which can contribute even in a small degree to this 
vital comprehension. 

If our institution can be of patriotic service as well as aca- 
demic use, there is sound reason why it should share in the 
development which is now proposed for the contiguous 
institutions. 

The accommodation of the public who make rare visits, and 
of people who know what there is here and wish to make 
frequent use of such benefits at convenient hours, would be 
enhanced if we could afford an assistant to the present 
Librarian. The Library and the historical treasures could be 
more readily displayed and made more accessible if such space 
as we have might be completely and systematically utilized, 
as the Librarian has proposed. To do these things more 
money is needed. 

Perhaps a larger income might be obtained, the services of 
the Society at the same time extended, and attention attracted 
to its advantages, by measures for increasing the membership 
of the Society. To bring about a fruitful consideration of 
this project it is desirable that a committee should be named, 
with power to carry out such plans as they may formulate, 
for adding to the roll of membership. 

In the last year fourteen new active members have been 
added by election. The name of one active member tempo- 
rarily off the roll has been restored. Five active members, 
paying dues annually, have died, leaving a net increase of ten 
in that class of membership. Two new ex-officio members 
have been added by their appointment as judges of the Superior 
Court. Judge Alberto T. Roraback has ceased to be an ex- 
officio member by reason of his retirement from the bench 
through age limitation August 23, 19 19. 

The membership of the Society is now constituted by one 
honorary member, iS ex-officio members, two of whom are 
also active members, and 32S active members, 32 of these being 
life members. The number paying dues annually is therefore 
296. 



It seems as though this number might be promptly doubled 
if the opportunity were generally presented for sharing in and 
promoting so pleasant and important a work at the cost of 
$3.00 for admission and $3.00 annual dues for residents of 
Hartford, or $2.00 for members living outside the City. 

At the monthly meetings held in the course of the year, 
papers have been read. as follows: 

October 7, 1919 — The Birthplace of the Great Plot, by John 

M. Holcombe. 
November 4, 1919 — History of the Northwest corner of Main 

and Pearl Streets, Hartford, by George E. Hoadley. 
December 2, 1919 — Some Early American Novels, by Col. 

Francis Parsons. 
January 6, 1920 — The Huguenots in America, by P A orrest 

Morgan. 
February 3, 1920 — War Posters (a talk, not a paper) by 

Frank M. Gregg, of Cleveland, Ohio. 
March 2, 1920 — The Origin of and Stages in the Develop- 
ment of the Russian Church, by Rev. Edwin Knox 

Mitchell. 
April 6, 1920 — The Barkhamsted Lighthouse, by Rev. 

Sherrod Soule. 
May 4, 1920 — The Moodus Noises, by Francis H. Parker. 

The Society has voted in the past year to publish the corres- 
pondence of Joshua Huntington, mostly of the period of the 
Revolution, which is owned by Roger Wolcott, of Boston, and 
has been copied, edited and offered to us by Edward Gray of 
Milton, Massachusetts. 

It is proposed that the Society continue its publication of the 
correspondence of our Colonial Governors by issuing that of 
William Pitkin, Governor from May, 1766, to October, 1769. 

The second volume of the Governor Thomas Fitch corres- 
pondence ( 1 759-1 766) has been printed and is now in the 
bindery. 

Since the last Annual Meeting the Society has lost by

IS 



librarian's Report. 



Air. President and Members of the Society: 

Once more the seasons have gone their round and another 
year has been added to the life and to the history of this So- 
ciety, which now is approaching the century anniversary of its 
first organization and has passed four score years since its re- 
organization to activity in 1839. It has had a history of which 
its members may well be proud. Always poor from a financial 
standpoint, frequently hampered by lack of room for expansion 
and want of various facilities for its growth, it has, neverthe- 
less, achieved an honorable name and reputation, and has 
become the rich repository and in a sense the public trustee of 
an interesting, valuable and rare collection of books, manu- 
scripts and historical objects. Unfortunately the Society seems 
occasionally to be like the prophet, better known and more 
honored at a distance than in its own city of Hartford or 
perhaps state of Connecticut. 

The second volume of the Governor Thomas Fitch Papers, 
covering the years 1 759-1 766, and completing the period of 
his governorship, has been printed; but has not yet been 
received from the bindery. It forms a volume, including con- 
tents and indices, of 477 pages. Included in it are the rolls of 
several companies of Connecticut soldiers in the French and 
Indian War which have not been previously printed. The 
rolls of Col. Phineas Lyman's and Col. Nathan Whiting's 
regiments in 1761, which appear in volume ten of the Society's 
"Collections," are again printed in this volume because of the 
additional information against each soldier's name of the town 
from which he came. More than 1750 soldiers names appear 
in the volume. All of the rolls here printed are from official 
copies on file in the Public Record Office, London. Our 
annual report issued last July is a pamphlet of 4S pages con- 
taining the usual reports and statistics regarding the Society. 
The list of manuscript accessions which it contains is of unusual 
length and interest. 



Mention was made in my last-repeat of X&&, xeeenj. accession 
of printed and manuscript material received from Miss Freda 
D. Sanford of Derby, which at that time had not been examined 
or arranged. This material was selected from the extensive 
library and from the voluminous correspondence of her father 
Hon. Henry Shelton Sanford, LL. D., J. U. D., (1823-1891) 
of Derby, diplomat, author, promoter and business man. Mr. 
Sanford commenced his diplomatic career in 1847 as attache at 
St. Petersburg; the next year he was acting Secretary at 
Frankfort; from 1849 to 1854 Secretary and charge at Paris; 
and minister to Belgium 1 861-1869, where he negotiated and 
signed a number of treaties and conventions. He was very 
active in the earlv efforts to establish railroad communication 
from ocean to ocean either across the isthmus of Panama or 
some of the adjoining Central American states. In 1859 he 
was sent by the President to negotiate for the extension of the 
Panama Railroad charter. He made several visits to Central 
and South America in the interests of some extensive com- 
mercial concessions in Venezuela and of the projected railroad. 
His interests also included development of western railroads 

and western lands in the United States. One of his business 

i 
ventures was a large sugar cane plantation in Louisana. He 

founded the city of Sanford, Florida, in 1870, where he en- 
gaged extensively in orange culture and where he introduced 
the culture of the lemon. In 1877 he was one of the founders 
of the International African Association, now the Free State 
of the Congo, was a member of its executive committee, and 
as its plenipotentiary in Washington secured in 1884 the 
recognition of its flag. He was one of the two delegates from 
the United States to the Berlin Congo conference of 1885, 
which opened to free trade and neutrality a territory of 1,000, 
000 square miles. The following year he organized and dis- 
patched the "Sanford Exploring Expedition," whose boats 
were the first commercial steamers floated on the upper Congo 
river. He was interested in penology and the United States 
government published a thick octavo volume written by him 
on " Penal Codes in Europe, " also a volume treating of inter- 
national law. The Sanford manuscripts, the gift of Miss 
Sanford, acting as executrix, who desired that her father's 
papers should find a permanent resting place in his native 



state, comprise many thousands of letters, drafts of letters, 
letter press copies, reports, journals, addresses and miscel- 
laneous writings. They treat principally of the public affairs 
in which he was engaged, and are particularly rich during the 
period of the Civil war, when he appears to have been the 
trusted confidential agent of the United States in Europe. 
Practically every interest to which he devoted himself is 
covered by a series of letters, and the names of many of the 
important men of the period both in Europe and the United 
States are signed to some of them. Two examples will suffice. 
One is a volume of letters, many of them marked " Private, " 
written by. Secretary of State William H. Seward during the 
Civil war; another is a package of letters written from the 
interior of Africa by Henry M. Stanley. A more detailed list 
of the manuscripts appears later in this report. 

"To complete the gift," as Miss Sanford expressed it, of 
her father's correspondence and manuscripts, the Society was 
permitted to select and purchase from Mr. Sanford 's library 
1535 items of books, pamphlets, leaflets and maps, practically 
all of which pertain to the same subjects covered by the manu- 
scripts. There are numerous items relating to Belgium and 
France and some to Russia and Germany; many concerning 
Africa and the Congo, as well as the Berlin conference; nu- 
merous works relating to Central and South American states, 
in w T hose history and literature he appears to have been in- 
terested; many pamphlets concerning ocean to ocean railroads; 
many on the history and commercial prospects of Florida. A 
series of bound volumes of pamphlets contain numerous unusual 
Civil war items. 

Among other gifts of manuscript worthy of particular 
mention is that received from Miss May Bailey of Worcester, 
Mass., of numerous valuable copies of Connecticut vital rec- 
ords, principally from early church records. These copies, 
more than sixty in all, were made by or for her father, the 
late Frederic William Bailey, who for twenty-eight years was 
a member of this society, and were probably gathered by him 
as he was preparing his volumes of Early Connecticut Mar- 
riages for publication and as his genealogical research work 
called him to different towns. In many instances these copies 
are incomplete, only a portion of the record having been copied; 



the intention probably being to complete the copy during some 
later trip to the town, which was never made. Copies of some 
of these church records were already in our possession from 
other sources; but this gift adds numerous copies that are of 
much value to the Society. The Bingham genealogy, pre- 
sented by Gen. Theodore A. Bingham, is a much enlarged 
revision of the work published by him in 1898. Mr. Castle's 
.History of Plainville is a work which does him credit both in 
its accuracy and completeness and the care and style in which 
the volume is prepared and illustrated. The five volumes of 
Simonds or Symonds genealogies compiled and presented by 
Robert Hale Simonds are the result of many years of careful 
research and labor and are very complete. 

The genealogy of the Case families of America, to the com- 
pilation of which Dr. Erastus E. Case had methodically devoted 
the spare time of a score of years of his busy life, has been 
placed with the Society by Mrs. Case. This carefully arranged 
and typewritten manuscript is very extensive, filling thirty- 
three typewriter-paper boxes, besides some miscellaneous mat- 
ter and two thick bound volumes of index. The sudden death 
of Dr. Case, who had been a member of this Society for fourteen 
years, prevented the realization of his cherished hope and 
expectation of placing his completed manuscript in the print- 
er's hands within a short time. The work is very complete, 
thoroughly compiled and systematically arranged.

the year and the sources from which they were received:

Purchased. 

Samuel Talcott's diary of a trip from Connecticut to Ohio, April- 
June 1819. 

Records of North Stonington temperance society, 1S2S, containing 
names of 334 members. 

The gift of a valuable collection of genealogical manuscripts 
by Mr. Donald Lines Jacobus was noted in my last report, and 
certain conditions attached to the gift were there stated. Since 
that time, upon the return of Mr. Jacobus from military service 
in France, he has removed the condition of a payment of a fee 
for the privilege of consulting these manuscripts. 

A quantity of cloth covered paste board boxes 9^ by 14^ 
by 4 inches have been procured and a beginning has been made 
during the year of assorting and arranging some of our series 
of historical manuscripts and letters in them. Something had 
previously been done along the same line by using file boxes 
of a slightly smaller size that had been discarded by one of the 
local insurance companies. In all nearly 150 boxes have al- 
ready been filled. Thus cared for these manuscripts are better 
preserved, arranged and classified than they have been and can 
be more easily located and consulted. It is hoped that another 
hundred boxes may be filled during the coming year. 

Excepting the large collection of Sanford books and pam- 
phlets, comparatively few purchases of important books have 
been made during the year now closing. The increase in the 
prices asked for books would naturally lessen the number of 
purchases that could be made with a fixed appropriation or 
income for the growth of the library. Many of the new books 
appear not to be worth the prices asked for them, and your 
library committee has hesitated about authorizing their pur- 
chase. In some instances books published within a few years, 
and which are still on the market, have been advanced by 
dealers to more than twice their former price. Genealogical 
pamphlets, excerpts from larger books, consisting of from two 
to ten pages are frequently offered at two dollars each. To 
purchase the same number and size of books on local history 
and genealogy now, means the expenditure of more than twice 
the amount required three or four years ago. 

The total of accessions during the year, exclusive of manu- 
scripts, has been by gift 400 volumes, 539 pamphlets and 53 
miscellaneous items; by purchase, including five volumes 



1 

credited to particular funds, 536 volumes, 1182 pamphlets and 
151 miscellaneous items; by exchange three pamphlets. This 
makes a total of 936 volumes, 1721 pamphlets and 204 mis- 
cellaneous, and a grand total of 2861 items, among which are 
1535 items credited to the Sanford purchase. 

The purchases made with income from the Charles J. 
Hoadly Fund are as follows: 

Genealogy of some desendants of Thomas Fuller of Woburn by 

William H. Fuller. 
Records and files of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County, Mass., 

vol. 7, 1678-16S0.. 
Probate records of Essex County, Mass., vols. 1, 2, 1635-1674. (2 vols.) 

The history of the Wheeler Family in America was pur- 
chased with income from the William F. J. Boardman Fund. 

Your recording secretary and librarian acknowledges with 
regret that in preparing the last " annual report " for the press 
he omitted the last page of President Gross' address of May 
27, 19 19, which is as follows: 

" I have greatly appreciated the honor of being the President 
"of the Connecticut Historical Society. I fear that I have 
"not been of much aid; but I can assure you, that I shall still 
"retain my interest in the Society and shall be ready to aid 
"you at all times in advancing its good fortunes and its pres- 
" ent high reputation. 

" Charles E. Gross." 

The gift by Dr. Flavel S. Luther of a volume of the Windham 
Herald, containing a portion of the years 1 794-1 795, makes 
our file of that valuable newspaper practically complete from 
its beginning in 1791 to the end of 1804, except for the year 
March 1797 to March 1798, and gives this Society the finest 
file extant. 

A continuing subscription by the late James J. Goodwin, 
our former Vice-President, has brought us two volumes of the 
Victoria History of the Counties of England, Hertfordshire 
vol. iv. and Yorkshire vol. 1, also Crisp's Visitation of Ireland 
vol. vi. Forty volumes have now been received of the Chron- 
icles of America series published by the Yale Press. The 



American Historical Society of New York has presented us 
with the eight volumes of its valuable biographical and gene- 
alogical Fmcyclopedia of Massachusetts. Our annual donation 
of directories of different cities, received from the Hartford 



Printing Company, consists this year of one hundred seventy 
volumes. 

Our unrivaled collection of eighteenth century Connecticut 
imprints has received six additions, bearing dates 1 771, 1784, 

1785, 1794 (2), 1798. 

Among the years accessions are a considerable number of 
church manuals, year books and similar church and local town 
publications. These items, although small and often over- 
looked, frequently prove of much assistance to historical and 
genealogical searches. A number of local histories of towns 
in Vermont and on Long Island have been acquired. Numer- 
ous valuable publications have, as usual, been received from 
the United States government, the Smithsonian Institution, 
the state of Connecticut, and the various historical societies 
which are on our regular exchange list. The Bureau of Rail- 
way Economics has added a considerable number of railroad 
reports. and other pamphlets upon railway matters to our ex- 
tensive collection on that subject. Two local institutions, the 
JEtna Insurance Company and the Society for Savings, have 
favored us with copies of their centennial histories. Our late 
Vice-President James J. Goodwin had subscribed on behalf of 
the- Society for the English magazine The Genealogist; the 
subscription ceasing with his death five years ago. As there 
was frequent call for this magazine the Society has recently 
renewed the subscription. 

William B. Birge of Norwich has presented to us the flag 
carried by the " Forlorn Hope " at the storming of Port Hud- 
son under the command of Colonel, later Major General Henry 
W. Birge, father of the donor. 

Our genealogical collection has been increased by the ad- 
dition of histories of the following families: Avery-Fairchild- 
Park, Avery pedigree, Beard, Bingham, Buck, Clarke, Cod- 
dington, Currier, Fales, Forbes and Forbush, Fuller, Good- 
ridge, Johnson, Kimber, Newton, Peter, Sage, Smith, Stillmau, 
Toy, Warner, Wheeler. 

Miss Alice Welles of New Vork has recently presented to 
the Society nine cases of books and pamphlets which had been 
received as a deposit from her father the late Edgar T. Welles, 
sometime a member of the Society. The books had formed a 
part of the library of the depositor, and some of them had once 
belonged to his father Hon. Gideon Welles, who was also a 



member of the Society for 38 years. As the Society at present 
has no shelf room for so large a number of books, the cases 
have not yet been unpacked. 

The use of the library during the year, as indicated by the 
number of readers, shows an increase of above thirteen per 
cent over last year. The number since the last annual meeting 
being 2656. 

A gift recently received from Miss Jane R. Johnson of South 
Orange, X.-J. has as yet been only partially unpacked and not 
thoroughly examined. It consists of a case of books and three 
small boxes of manuscripts. The manuscripts comprise John- 
son family correspondence, legal documents, and some original 
writings and memoranda, beginning about 1830 and covering 
a period of about seventy-five years. The donor's father 
Alexander George Johnson, a native of Vermont, removed to 
New York state where he was prominent in educational affairs, 
was for four years deputy secretary of the state, and for 
almost twenty years editor of a daily newspaper in Troy. He. 
died in 1S79. Besides his correspondence, the letters also 
include correspondence of his children, some of whom appear 
to have resided for a time in Connecticut and others in New 
York city; of his father David Johnson of Newbury, Vermont, 
and of his mother's family the Wardens of Windsor, Vermont. 
A sister of Mrs. A. G. (Warden) Johnson was the wife of 
William M. Evarts the famous lawyer. 

In the matter of much needed additional room for our 
library, I can only repeat what has been said already in previous 
reports. We have outgrown our space and particularly our 
shelf room for books, pamphlets, newspapers and manuscripts. 
If we are to continue existence our library must and will grow: 
our shelves are already crowded beyond their proper capacity; 
there is no space on them for growth, the outlook sometimes 
seems discouraging. Such in a few words is our situation. 
The question is what can be done. 

Respectful!}' submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.
